AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Michael Sharkey has long been known as one of Australia’s most congenial, collegial, and agile poets and literary critics. One might have expected this anthology to be an assemblage of various tribute and assessments, all done with the urbanity and goodwill long known to be Sharkey’s hallmark. What a surprise, then, to realise that this collection, though indeed various, generous, and informative, tinged throughout with what Gordon Collier, in his preface to the book, calls Sharkey’s ‘evanescently ironical’ but not ‘acidulous’ personality (ix), is really dedicated to one theme: the shared cultural practices of Australia and New Zealand.'

    'When preparing an issue of Transnational Literature, the last thing I do before writing the editor’s note is to compile the contributors’ page. For some that might seem like a mere formality. I’m not sure how many people will click through and view the list of bio notes of our authors – forty-odd academics, students, poets, memoirists and novelists from just about everywhere you can think of: Saudi Arabia, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Japan, India, Hong Kong, Greece, Bangladesh, South Africa, USA, UK, Italy, Malaysia and, yes, Australia.' (Gillian Dooley, Letter from the Editor)
